Going into Business for Myself

My main passion in life, other than my family, is baking. I love to bake everything from muffins and cookies to cakes and pies, and everything in between. There are days where I am in the kitchen for up to eight hours baking for friends or family, but I truly do love doing it. When my husband suggested that I look into sticker label printing in Brisbane, I was not sure why at first. That is when he told me that he thought I should start making a profit at what I love to do most.

I had considered baking for a profit before, but I felt bad asking people for money like that. He explained that people would pay a lot more if they went to a bakery, and I had to agree. I rarely go to bakeries, but when I do, their prices simply amaze me. I know what it costs to make something. Even after adding in business costs, it still seems really high. Since I knew that my friends and family would support me, I decided to give it a go. I really liked the idea of the stickers so I could package my baked goods in a labeled bag so people knew that I was the one that baked it.

This had nothing to do with ego and everything to do with name recognition. I already know that I am a good baker, it is just a talent that I have been blessed with. That does me no good if people share my baked goods and others have no idea where it came from. I was able to locate a local company that makes stickers as well as things like flyers, brochures and business cards, and I knew that I was going to use their services even more as I grew my business bigger. Taking that first step was scary but liberating!
